The 6-2, 185 pound prospect just returned from a visit to Colorado for a business competition. "It went good," said Wright late Tuesday evening. "We had to compete for the nationals in business. We competed against people from all over the US."

When asked if he was ready to make his commitment, Wright responded, "I'm going to take some more unofficial visits. I will commit before I go back to school. I don't want to commit over the phone."

Wright will visit both the Tigers and the Gamecocks over the next few weeks. "I know for certain I will visit South Carolina and Clemson. I'm not sure if I will go anywhere else. I will probably make those visits within the next two weeks."

How has his parents influenced his decision process? "They will agree with whatever I say. They want to checkout the schools I am considering first. They want me to make my commitment in person."

Wright will be looking at several important factors when making his decision over the next two weeks.

"I will look at the coaching staffs. I want to see how they act towards me. I want to see how I fit into their program. I will also look at academics. I will see if I feel comfortable going to that school."

Is there a leader at this point? "I would say they are probably tied right now," stated the prize recruit.
